# Excel SUMIF Function Step by Step Tutorial

#### 8 of 8

The last step in the tutorial is to add the criteria we want the function to match.

In this case we want the total sales for Sales Reps with more than 250 orders so we will add the term > 250 to D12 - the cell identified in the function as containing the criteria argument.

### Tutorial Steps

For help with these instructions, see the image above.

1. In cell D12 type > 250 and press the Enter key on the keyboard.

2. The answer \$290,643.00 should appear in cell E12. The criterion of " > 250 " is met in four cells in column D: D4, D5, D8, D9. As a result the numbers in the corresponding cells in column E: E4, E5, E8, E9 are totalled.

3. When you click on cell E12, the complete function
=SUMIF (D3:D9, D12, E3:E9) appears in the formula bar above the worksheet.

4. To find the sales total for different numbers of order, type the amount, such as < 100 in cell E12 and press the Enter key on the keyboard.

5. The total sales for the appropriate number of cells should appear in cell E12.
